Job description

Outcomes. Delivered.

GCOM develops technology that helps governments improve outcomes for the people they serve.

For example, our technology:

  • Ensures that mothers can buy healthy food for their children through the WIC program.
  • Helps first responders decrease opioid overdoses in their neighborhoods.
  • Tracks trends in human trafficking so local law enforcement can identify traffickers and better support victims.
  • Gives teachers the insights they need to spot students who need extra support.

Combined, GCOM and OnCore form a large-scale digital software and solutions company focused solely on the state, local, and federal agencies, providing outcome-driven, repeatable software and services.

We’re more than a technology company -- we’re an outcomes company.
